After reading previous reviews I was torn about visiting Les Collettes. After several mishaps by bus (the drivers and other passengers do not have any idea there is a museum here), I finally made it to the museum/home of Renior. As mentioned by previous reviewers, some of the rooms are more bare than you would expect, and the English translations... More

We stumbled across the signs saying "Musee Renoir" in Nice on our very last day. We drove up a stunning little hill and found it. What a gem. To get to see his last days, including his wheelchair, easel, kitchen, bed and garden was an honour. It's only 6 euros to get in, and if you're 26 or under you... More

This museum is a very interesting insight into Renoir's final years. The house itself is a beautiful property and has wonderful views of Haut de Cagnes. The museum has on display a number of Renoir paintings and sculptures, but the success of this museum is the way it brings alive the man himself.

I had never visited Renoir's house before, so can only I imagine how atmospheric it must have been before the renovation, based on other reviews. Nevertheless, it is a beautiful house and, for an amateur artist like myself, an absolute must for a visit to the Côte d'Azur. I spent a very happy couple of hours visiting and sketching in... More

We have visited the Musee Renoir on two previous occasions, and were looking forward to our most recent visit. Entry now €6, with no reduction for seniors. What a disappointment! The highlight for us had always been Renoir's studio, with the room 'dressed' in the same way as the painting set in the same room. Oh dear- all the backdrops,... More

Living in the area we have visited the Renoir house on many occasions and were looking forward to seeing it again after its recent renovation. What a disaster! The house has been cleaned up, re-painted, polished floors, with lilac radiators!!! Renoir's studio, which previously looked as if he had just walked out with a painting on the easel, brushes, paints... More

Our tour guide for Cote d'Azur recommended Musee Renoir after hearing us mention that we are interested in art. Really glad we decided to stop by for a few hours. The area is very quiet and pleasant to walk through. The gardens and the house give off a charming feel and the house itself is beautiful. If you're looking to... More

We were holidaying in Antibes, and found the Renoir Museum quite by chance. When we parked up on the steeps streets, close to the entrance we realised that the museum was shut :-) or at least so the signs said. The gates were locked, so we thought we'd had a wasted visit. We later saw children walking up the hill... More

Renoir had this house built next to the small farm building he owned in the hills behind Cagnes. A few works and some memorabilia. Some film of Renoir and an atmospheric setting. Enjoyable and the staff were very helpful. There is also a buggy to climb the path if walking is a problem.
